Djimi Traore scores thunderous goal for Sounders

USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, Djimi Traore scored a blistering 35-yard goal for the Seattle Sounders in the CONCACAF Champions League to help them to the semifinals. Suspicions of witchcraft are probably not unfounded.

This might be the most implausible thing I've ever seen in a soccer match:

  1. That is very difficult shot to even get on target, never mind in off the crossbar at approximately two billion miles and hour.
  2. It came in the middle of a three-goal second-half comeback that saw an MLS team knock out a Mexican one in the CONCACAF Champions League for the first time ever.
  3. ...and most importantly, Djimi Traore did it. Yes, that Djimi Traore -- the 33-year-old who, going into Monday, had two goals in 272 club appearances. Liverpool supporters watching this are probably assuming it was an own goal.
